In recent updates, Microsoft released two hotfixes which updated their FireWire stack file. However, these updates cause performance drops in the functionality of Texas Instruments (TI) FireWire Controllers which ship with QImaging cameras. These performance drops manifest with the following symptoms:

  • Image Tearing
  • Interference Lines
  • Black Images
  • Reduced Frames-per-second

Installing the Thesycon 1394 stack fixes these problems by replacing the default Microsoft stack. This remedies any problems caused by the updates.

The Thesycon FireWire stack has been thoroughly tested and does not cause any other conflicts or problems with any devices.
